British Airways suspends three unprofitable routes.
British Airways has decided to suspend flights to Bogota, Bilbao and Caracas from London's Heathrow Airport after they failed to make a profit, according to the airline.
The Bilbao service was suspended on 1 November 2004 with the Bogota, Columbia and Caracas, Venezuela services due to end on 6 February 2005. British Airways' Bilbao route has been hit hard by competition from low-cost airlines who also fly to northern Spain, but the route will still be operated through its codesharing agreement with Iberia.
A spokesperson for British Airways said that the airline had worked hard to improve the profitability of the routes but the continued weak performance meant they had to be cut, reports Dow Jones.
